How to Convert Microhenries to Henries

To convert a measurement in microhenries to a measurement in henries, divide the electrical inductance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 microhenries/henry.

Since one henry is equal to 1,000,000 microhenries, you can use this simple formula to convert:

henries = microhenries ÷ 1,000,000

The electrical inductance in henries is equal to the electrical inductance in microhenries divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 microhenries to henries using the formula above.
henries = (5,000,000 μH ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 H

Microhenries and henries are both units used to measure electrical inductance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is a Microhenry?

One microhenry is equal to 1/1,000,000 of a henry, which is the inductance of a conductor with one volt of electromotive force when the current is increased by one ampere per second.

The microhenry is a multiple of the henry, which is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for millionths, or 10-6. Microhenries can be abbreviated as μH; for example, 1 microhenry can be written as 1 μH.

What Is a Henry?

One henry is equal to the inductance of a conductor in which there is one volt of electromotive force when the current through the conductor is increased by one ampere per second.[1]

The henry is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance in the metric system. Henries can be abbreviated as H; for example, 1 henry can be written as 1 H.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology recommends using "henries" as the plural form of the unit, however the usage of "henrys" is also common.[2]
